A few months ago The New York Times published a slide show of Models and Their Mothers. Photographer Howard Schatz has been taking pictures of models with their mothers for a dozen years. He’s interested in the genetic transmission of beauty as well as “how they interact with each other.”
Schatz says the models have “a hard time” just relaxing in front of the camera, because they want to “[tell] the camera how it’s supposed to see them.” The photos are wonderful to flip through, and the interaction is, in fact, fascinating to observe.

The juxtaposition of height is striking. I love that they are simply holding hands.
|Ruby Brown and her mother Adele.
I don’t see the facial resemblance but they seem close.
|Viola Haqi and her mother Joke de Vree.
Wow, they look like twins separated only by the years. Both are striking.
|Ashley Dickey Newman and her mother Cindy Dickey.
This is my favorite pic. I adore the daughter’s wild mane in contrast to her mom’s spiky cut. But I see the
resemblance in their eyes.
